Hi,
Purchased my first SLK 230 3 weeks ago now.
70,000 miles on the clock and it still drives great.
I have already had a bit of rust sorted out on the front wing and will now look at sorting out the chipped paint on the interior central console.
looking forward to a large number of years playing with the new toy.

:)

New to the SLK world

Hi,Just a quick update.
We have had the 230 for about 8 weeks now.
We seem to have the same type of issues as others with ;
1.the interior paint chips
2. Small amount of rust on the front drivers side wheel arch.
3.Bit of rust on the rear wheel arch's

I had the rust on the front sorted out and am now starting on the rear arch's.
The interior will be sorted out during July.
I will add some photo's once all the work is complete.

Hi and welcome to the forum from Surrey.

Looks like you're already getting stuck in. The cars are very nice when sorted and I'm sure you'll enjoy owning it.
